Sustainable development can be embedded at any stage of the curriculum. This includes at the point of design, through to the summative assessment. Careful consideration of teaching and learning materials and resources can also ensure that sustainability is embedded into your curriculum. Sustainability can be embedded quite formally via summative assessments or more informally via formative assessments. The guide below has been designed to help you identify Where And How you can embed sustainability into your curriculum. Other forms of support for colleagues wishing to embed ESD into their own curriculum can be found via the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) website and through EHU’s SustainNET members.

What about existing programmes?
Sustainability is already a thread that runs within many programmes at EHU, to establish how much sustainability is currently being taught, existing module content can be reviewed and collated.
To map existing provision to SDGs the below Sustainability Analysis Template can be utilised alongside the ‘How and Why’ guidance:
A number of these templates have been completed and can be viewed as examples:
- BUS3048 – Sustainability and Business (Semester 1 and 2) – Business (PDF)
- DAN2301 – Body Matters in Performance, English and Creative Arts (PDF)
- BSc Plant Sciences; MSc Conservation Management – Biology (PDF)
The ‘How and Why’ guidance and the Sustainability Analysis Template are available for you to download to map your current module/programme content. Once complete please send them to [email protected] for them to be added to this website and used to collate our EHU sustainability outputs.
